48- Heavy Metal Toxicity and How to Detox with Wendy Myers

When was the last time you thought about how your mineral levels are doing? Likely your answer is ‘never', or at the most you say that you get calcium from your milk. So if we don't think about minerals, why would heavy metal toxicity become something we are interested in?

As Wendy Myers said in our podcast, the minerals are the spark plugs for the body. When minerals are out of balance, then a lot of dysfunction can start to occur. Heavy metals are known to place themselves where normal minerals are supposed to be in the body, however instead of improving our function, it creates heavy metal toxicity.

What Are Heavy Metals and What is Heavy Metal Toxicity

Heavy metals, or toxic metals, are forms of minerals that are much denser and more toxic than other minerals. These can be deposited throughout the body, and can come from our food, air, and environment.

The problem with heavy metals is that they are difficult to detox fully out of the body. So what happens is that a buildup of metals can occur in the body, and start creating heavy metal toxicity.

Some symptoms of heavy metal toxicity are:

  • Nausea
  • Vomitting
  • Heart Problems
  • Cognitive Issues
  • Fatigue

Remember, these are only some of the symptoms. Wendy Myers talks a lot more about symptoms and what to look for in this episode!

In this episode, Wendy Myers and I discuss:

»What are toxic metals and how can they impact the body
